Pavlo Klimkin, Ukraine’s foreign minister, went to the Netherlands late on Tuesday to discuss further fate of EU-Ukraine Association agreement in this country.
The Ukrainian official will meet with his Dutch counterpart Bert Kunders, president of the upper house of the Dutch Parliament and leaders of political parties and parliamentary factions. Klimkin will insist on the importance of the EU-Ukraine Association agreement for the united Europe and the Netherlands in particular.
The Dutch parliament obliged the government to decide whether it ratifies the agreement; the decision is to be made until November. The Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said his government will most likely not ratify the document, taking into account the results of the April 2016 referendum in the country. Back then, 61 percent of the voters said no to ratification of the agreement with Ukraine.
